Fear Not, Little Children

Behold, ye are little children, And ye cannot bear all things now.
You must grow, you must learn, Day by day.
You’re not alone, dear little children,
Though sometimes you might feel that way somehow.
I’m at your side, I’m here to guide you on your way.

Fear not, little children, For I have overcome the world.
In me, ye shall find peace; In me, ye shall find peace.

Behold, ye are my little children,
And sometimes when you try to walk, you fall.
But my arms are extended: I’ll see you through it all.
You are mine, my precious little children–
The Father has given you to me.
And none shall be lost Who are my little ones, my little sheep.

Fear not, little children, For I have overcome the world.
In me, ye shall find peace; In me, ye shall find peace.

I am in your midst; I go before your face;
I know how to lead you home;
And I’ve prepared a place for you.

There’s so much I’d like to say to you, little children,
But ye cannot bear all things now.
You must grow, day by day—
And I will show you …
How.
